I’ve long been fascinated by this period of The Rolling Stones’ career. It’s ripe for a book length study. Absent that kind of in depth analysis I hoped this thread might help illuminate it a bit more. At this stage they had moved on from being mostly an excellent scruffy blues/soul cover band with great original songs sprinkled in to a wholly original unit with a look as unique as their sound. They were hitting their creative stride and everything about them glowed with the excitement of something new and slightly dangerous yet irresistibly alluring. Swinging London and Carnaby Street. The music they made, their fashion sense, the women in their lives, the notorious 1967 drug raid at Redlands and its aftermath all make this one of the most compelling chapters in their history. It’s my fondest wish that this would be a repository for all things related to this era in The Rolling Stones history. They released three full length original albums and several singles (plus the Flowers album in the American market) in this timeframe. My playlist of this period begins with “19th Nervous Breakdown” b/w “Sad Day” and continues on through Their Satanic Majesties Request. “Child Of The Moon” rounds it out. It was, of course, not released until 1968 but feels more of a piece with the psychedelic material than with what came afterwards, in my opinion. Feel free to share opinions, pictures, remembrances of this era and anything else that would add to the discussion of this unique time period.
